Food safety qualifications launched

The Royal Institute of Public Health is launching a new set of food safety qualifications aimed at the food retail, manufacturing and catering sectors.

The organisation says the new qualifications have been tailored to meet their particular requirements as set out in the new National Occupational Standards, and the latest European and UK legislation.

Dr Alan Maryon-Davis, chair of the Royal Institute, said: "It's really important that customers, staff and employers have confidence in food safety standards. These new qualifications have been specially tailored to meet the particular requirements set out by experts in each area. They provide an up-to-date approach to training in keeping with, and relevant to, everyday life."

The Royal Institute says the awards, offered at various levels within the National Qualifications Framework, cover all the topics relating to hygiene, legal and operational requirements that staff will need in order to operate safely and effectively in their business sector.
